Disc Herniations

A Natural Approach to Disc Herniations

Lower Back X-rayDisc herniations. Those two words conjure images of drugs, cortisone shots and surgery. At the very least years of physical therapy and problems.

How are herniations diagnosed? From an MRI… According to some studies back pain and symptoms are not connected to disc herniations and many times there have been found patients with no back pain will have disc herniations or bulges. Well how did you get diagnosed with a disc herniation? My guess is that you went in to the doctor with a symptom, neck pain, back pain, numbness and tingling. The doctor in an attempt to find the cause ordered an MRI and found a disc herniation. Therefore your problem is caused from a disc herniation.

What you may not know is that most people walking around with no symptoms have some level of disc bulge or herniation WITHOUT EVER KNOWING IT! Just because you have a disc herniation, does not mean that it is causing your symptom. Sometimes there could be other causes of neck pain, back pain or numbness and tingling that can be solved simply and naturally without drugs or surgery. If there is a conservative, natural solution it should be tried first. We invite you to come see if you are a candidate for a natural solution to the problems blamed on disc herniations.
